We wanted a donkey to help guard the sheep and goats at Conner Prairie. It couldn’t be just a regular donkey though and it couldn’t just be a mini donkey. We wanted a BABY mini donkey. I find it hard to believe that anything in this world could be cuter than a baby mini donkey. So we are trying one on for size and deciding if we’re going to keep him.
Like most babies, he likes to take frequent naps.
At only two weeks old he’s already figured out where the best napping places are.
His mother would prefer he didn’t. “Son, you’re never going to get a full-time job here if you just lie around looking dead,” she said.
“But Momma, I don’t wanna,” he said.
“Get up. No son of mine is going to be a lazy bum.”
“But Momma, the sheep get to lie down.”
“Are you a sheep? No. Now look alive.”
“You’re lucky I don’t have thumbs or I’d spit polish that crazy hair of yours.”
So what do you think, is he cute enough to keep?
